Leading developer of processors for mobile devices offered a new graphics engine, which promises a hefty increase in productivity in comparison with its predecessor.
ARM Holdings presented a graphic core Mali-T658, oriented to work in conjunction with the central computing crystals on microarchitectures Cortex-A15 and Cortex-A7. New API-compatible sets, such as OpenGL ES 1.1 and 2.0, OpenCL 1.1, OpenVG 1.1, DirectX 11 and Renderscript.
Mali-T658, which is based on the microarchitecture of Midgard, contains twice as much than the previous implementation, shader cores and arithmetic pipelines for the kernel, which defines a tenfold performance gain with respect to the Mali-400, installed in the Samsung Galaxy S II, and four-time increase in comparison with Mali-T604. Novelty can be scaled up to eight cores.
